MATH11219 - Applied Calculus

General Information

Unit Synopsis

In this unit, you will apply the essential calculus concepts, processes and techniques to develop mathematical models for science and engineering problems. You will use of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to illustrate the relationship between the derivative and the integral of a function. The theorem will also be applied to problems involving definite integrals. Differential calculus will be used to construct mathematical models which investigate a variety of rate-of-change and optimisation problems. You will learn how to apply the standard rules and techniques of integration. Science and engineering disciplinary problems will be investigated through use of differential equations. Other important elements of this unit are the communication of results, concepts and ideas using mathematics as a language. Mathematical software will also be used to visualise, analyse, validate and solve problems studied in the unit.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

This information will not be available until 8 weeks before term.
To see assessment details from an earlier availability, please search via a previous term.

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
